Hi all. This year I will again crewing the Ride for AIDS Chicago as part of team Cheetah. I will be providing support for the amazing riders who are taking on 200 miles of saddle soreness this Septemeber
I will have my best tutu on for the occassion :)
I don't think I need to tell you how, this year in particular, this is a vital cause. This community is under attack from all sides - including the desperate need for funding in the face of withdrawing healthcare coverage. Supporting the ride funds critical HIV services in the community. It also continues to raise awareness around HIV/AIDS, a disease that carries with it a debilitating stigma.
I will be spending the next few months supporting the riders as they train. I would love to have you along for the ride, either in spirit or in real life.
Through the Ride for Life Chicago, thousands of donors and more than 300 volunteer cyclists, advocates, crew, and team members help provide care to 2,000 people every year in Chicago and a lifeline of HIV health and treatment information to more than 100,000 people across the country. Our mission is to empower all lives affected by HIV and its many health challenges. The name “Ride for Life” reflects this event’s powerful impact: every mile, every donation and sponsorship, and every volunteer helps save lives through the work of TPAN and our community partners.
